Boinc HD5770

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I can't get milkyway to run on my HD5770. it just sits there, like it's not taking any work.

In the meantime, i have a question.
People have been running boinc for a long time, a lot of processing power has been dedicated to the projects. Have there been any breakthru's by boinc users. Any specific things calculated that have been beneficial to the world in some way? Reason i'm asking, is because i would like to feel that the "work" we do is actually of good use.
Like when you donate some change to a foundation, you just don't know exactly where it goes.

milkyway needs double precision. a 5830 i believe is the lowest gpu in the 5xxx series that has it.

I think pretty much all other projects should work fine (einstein, SETI, Dirt, Collatz, POEM, Primegrid, etc...)

I chose Einstein@home, But the GPU only ues 27%. How can i increase this?


Graphics setting: frames per second (FPS)
Warning: affects CPU consumption! 50
Graphics setting: render quality
Warning: requires hardware 3D acceleration! low

Mess with this?

no, that just changes what the cpu graphic does if the boinc screensaver is used.

Any idea why my GPU is switching all of the time?

the usage is like 15%-25%-27%-12% it's really variable. Shouldn't it be close to 100%?

Go to Einstein@Home preferences and edit the setting that says GPU utilization factor of BRP apps to run more than one task at time, 0.5 means 2 tasks at a time, 0.33 = 3, 0.25 = 4 and so on

Note that your GPU will only start running simultaneous apps once it has connected to the einstein server, got the updated config and downloaded more WU's.
